Annual Report 2023

As we reflect on the remarkable journey of the academic year 2022-2023, we are thrilled to share the impactful strides we’ve made together. This year, we proudly celebrated 45 years of Fulfillment Fund, a milestone that inspired us to embark on an exciting rebranding initiative. Our refreshed logo and new look and feel pay homage to our rich history and set the stage for the dynamic future ahead. To unveil this evolution, we partnered with the incredible Ed Helms, who lent his voice to an animated video capturing the essence of our mission and the impact we’ve had over four and a half decades.

In-person events returned with renewed vigor, marking a pivotal moment in our journey. College admissions representatives were welcomed back into schools, fostering crucial connections between our students and institutions of higher learning. Our commitment to personalized engagement reached new heights with a fresh approach to delivering our Career Speaker Series at the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools campus. We also rejoiced in the return of cherished in-person student events, including our Northern California College Tour for high school juniors. We brought together our alumni, volunteers, and supporters for a networking event to deepen our community bonds.

Embracing change, we established a Fulfillment Fund College Advisor onsite at Los Angeles City College (LACC), to ensure that students navigating their transfer to four-year institutions could readily access their Fulfillment Fund Advisor on campus. Our dedication to innovative student engagement led to the launch of the High School Ambassadors, empowering students to become advocates within their own communities and to help create a college-going culture at their schools. 

In a year where economic uncertainties lingered, our dedication to securing a debt-free education for our students became more crucial than ever. For the first time in our history, we could quantify our impact in dollar values — helping secure a staggering $5.5 million in debt-free aid for our four-year college-bound high school seniors, ushering them into a future unburdened by financial constraints.

We served 3,660 students through our College Access and College Success Programs, adding to our cumulative total of more than 30,000 students served since our founding. 96% of our students graduated from high school, and 94% of our college students persisted in their postsecondary education or earned degrees.
